    Fill a big bowl (the biggest one you can find) halfway with water. Fold a wash cloth or tea towel into a little pad. Put the pad in the bottom of the bowl. Put some dry ice on the pad.

    Instant "boiling witch's cauldron" - swirling CO2 in the bowl that will spill out and crawl across the table before dropping to the floor.

    The cloth pad is there to keep the CO2 from cracking the bowl with extreme cold. Use tongs or something to handle the dry ice.

    Be aware of the air-displacement suffocation risk - CO2 is heavier than air. Do this in a well-ventilated area.

    Sure, it was nice, waterproof to 660', and used movement to wind it, therefore never needing batteries. But unlike the Luminox (and like many other watches) it lacked the provision for adjusting to a wetsuit or drysuit.

    I do indeed like watches, and knives. I feel that a quality item of either is very useful, and a cheap version is hazardous. Same for firearms.

    We bought a lot of our own gear because the Government-issued shit was crap. Watches, regulators, sleeping bags, boots, socks, gloves, knives, ammo, etc. When I was in Panama and places thereabouts, my cheap plastic watch melted from the bug juice, and my issue-clothes rotted away. The pens and pencils were made by some project-for-the-blind, and failed. The issue diving regulators were fatal, and the skis were referred to as "Suicide Slats" because of the bindings. As for knives, I had a good folder, a Gerber MKII, and others. Those are still serving me well.

    In my early 20s some friends and I decided to do the 2-liter bottle trick. We went to the park behind our houses, installed the dry ice into the 2-liter bottle half-full of water, dropped it into a metal trash can barrel, then ran like crazy.

    After a couple minutes after the pressure had built up BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

    The sound was like a huge bomb had gone off, but since it was inside a barrel, there was no shrapnel, damage, or injuries, and we weren't nearby so could plead plausible deniability.

    So we decided to do it again. This time nothing happened. One of my normally-bright friends decided to investigate what had gone wrong, leaned over the barrel BOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

    He was near totally deafened for a day and a half. Luckily his hearing did come back.

    We were trained about "rods and cones". So, say you look directly at something in the dark, you can't see it. But if you look off to the side, you can.

    There were also classes about "sneaking", wherein we were taught to think about a sunny beach and fluffy clouds. DO NOT THINK ABOUT STICKING A KNIFE IN THE SENTRYS THROAT. Supposedly, this gets people agitated and they look around. Odd, but it actually worked. Also something about people being awake but asleep before dawn, so most of our jobs were between 0230 and 0430.

    And you might need something to cover that glow. A piece of Hundred-Mile_an_hour_tape will do it.

    The reason bodies float to the surface is due to the nasty bugs that cause putrefaction. Disgusting, stinking gasses.

    I thought of you, and the manuals, when I got some paperwork from the VA last week. I suspect they had to dumb it down, as they've lowered the bar at MEPS.

    I've still got a pretty nice Nixon watch. Wasn't no $300 - $500 but it's nice. Problem is the fucking band broke in a little spot and nobody around here can repair it. I emailed Nixon years ago about it and never got a response.

    Speaking of Nixon, when I was a kid, we were still living in southern california when he died. My mom decided she wanted to stand in the MILES LONG line to walk past his casket and took me with her. God damn that sucked. Just this line of people weaving through neighborhood culdesacs FOREVER.

    One fine morning we were walking along, and I glanced to my right and down. There was a guy, laying on his back beside the road in the grass, dressed in his work clothes and clutching his lunchpail. There was a large hole in his left forehead. Behind me, a guy said "I Guess they have an opening at his workplace."

    Would you have stood in a line through neighborhoods for 7 hours... LITERALLY 7-8 hours? With no food and no bathrooms? Although some people who lived in the neighborhood were opening their homes for people to use their bathrooms

    Depends on which president. For say Reagan or Clinton probably. For either Bush I would have pissed in water bottles and sold them to the people waiting in line.
